    An Exploration of the Scientific Writing Experience ofNon-native English-speaking Doctoral Supervisors and Students Using a Phenomemngraphic Approach2015In: Journal of Biomedical Education, ISSN 2314-503X, Vol. 2015, article id 542781Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nonnative English-speaking scholars and trainees are increasingly submitting their work to English journals. The study’s aim was to describe their experiences regarding scientific writing in English using a qualitative phenomenographic approach. Two focus groups (5 doctoral supervisors and 13 students) were conducted. Participants were nonnative English-speakers in a Swedish health sciences faculty. Group discussion focused on scientific writing in English, specifically, rewards, challenges, facilitators, and barriers. Participants were asked about their needs for related educational supports. Inductive phenomenographic analysis included extraction of referential (phenomenon as a whole) and structural (phenomenon parts) aspects of the transcription data. Doctoral supervisors and students viewed English scientific writing as challenging but worthwhile. Both groups viewed mastering English scientific writing as necessary but each struggles with the process differently. Supervisors viewed it as a long-term professional responsibility (generating knowledge, networking, and promotion eligibility). Alternatively, doctoral students viewed its importance in the short term (learning publication skills). Both groups acknowledged they would benefit from personalized feedback on writing style/format, but in distinct ways. Nonnative English-speaking doctoral supervisors and students in Sweden may benefit from on-going writing educational supports. Editors/reviewers need to increase awareness of the challenges of international contributors and maximize the formative constructiveness of their reviews.

    Emotions and encounters with healthcare professionals as predictors for the self-estimated ability to return to work: A cross-sectional study of people with heart failure2016In: BMJ Open, ISSN 2044-6055, E-ISSN 2044-6055, Vol. 6, no 11, article id e009896Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: To live with heart failure means that life is delimited. Still, people with heart failure can have a desire to stay active in working life as long as possible. Although a number of factors affect sick leave and rehabilitation processes, little is known about sick leave and vocational rehabilitation concerning people with heart failure. This study aimed to identify emotions and encounters with healthcare professionals as possible predictors for the self-estimated ability to return to work in people on sick leave due to heart failure. Design: A population-based cross-sectional study design was used. Setting: The study was conducted in Sweden. Data were collected in 2012 from 3 different sources: 2 official registries and 1 postal questionnaire. Participants: A total of 590 individuals were included. Statistics: Descriptive statistics, correlation analysis and linear multiple regression analysis were used. Results: 3 variables, feeling strengthened in the situation (beta=-0.21, p=0.02), feeling happy (beta=-0.24, p=0.02) and receiving encouragement about work (beta=-0.32, p <= 0.001), were identified as possible predictive factors for the self-estimated ability to return to work. Conclusions: To feel strengthened, happy and to receive encouragement about work can affect the return to work process for people on sick leave due to heart failure. In order to develop and implement rehabilitation programmes to meet these needs, more research is needed.

    Received and needed social support in relation to sociodemographic and socio‐economic factors in a population of people on sick leave due to heart failure2017In: ESC Heart Failure, E-ISSN 2055-5822, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 46-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims

    The aim of this study was to determine differences between sociodemographic and socio‐economic factors for perceptions of received and needed social support in a population of people on sick leave due to heart failure.

    Methods and results

    A cross‐sectional design was used. A postal questionnaire was distributed to all people in Sweden who had been sick listed due to heart failure during March to May 2012 (N = 1297). The questionnaire measured perceptions of received and needed social support from managers, colleagues at work, family and friends. Differences between groups were estimated with the Mann–Whitney U‐test. The sample included 414 men and 176 women aged 23 to 67 years (mean 58, median 60, SD = 6.75). Respondents with low income received significantly less support than respondents with high income and also needed significantly more support. Respondents with lower educational level needed significantly more support than people with higher education. Unmarried respondents needed significantly more support than married.

    Conclusions

    People with lower level of education, those who were unmarried and respondents with low income needed more support than they received. By identification of vulnerable patients, healthcare professionals can tailor and target supportive measures for patients who need extra social support.

    Exploring patients’ experiences of the whiplash injury-recovery process: A meta-synthesis2018In: Journal of Pain Research, ISSN 1178-7090, E-ISSN 1178-7090, Vol. 11, p. 1263-1271Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to conduct a meta-synthesis to analyze qualitative research findings and thereby understand patients’ experiences of whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) and the injury-recovery process. Materials and methods: A qualitative meta-synthesis, which is an interpretive integration of existing qualitative findings, was performed. The databases PubMed, PsychINFO, Scopus, and Web of Science were searched. The Critical Assessment Skills Programme was used to assess the quality of the included studies. Results: Four studies were included. The synthesis resulted in several codes, 6 categories, and 3 themes (distancing from normalcy, self-efficacy in controlling the life situation after the injury, and readjustment and acceptance) that described the participants’ pain beliefs, their WAD-related life situation and their future expectations and acceptance. Changes in self-image were difficult to cope with and likely led to perceived stigmatization. Struggling with feelings of loss of control appeared to lead to low confidence and insecurity. Focusing on increasing knowledge and understanding the pain and its consequences were believed to lead to better strategies for handling the situation. Furthermore, recapturing life roles, including returning to work, was challenging, but an optimistic outlook reinforced symptom improvements and contributed to feelings of happiness. Conclusion: The results of the present study provide a comprehensive understanding of patients’ complex, multifaceted experiences of WAD, and the injury-recovery process. The findings can guide us in the development of new ways to evaluate and manage WAD. The results also indicate that a more patient-centered approach is needed to determine the depth and breadth of each patient’s problems.
